I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Telecommuting. Flexible hours. Lower management seem to care.

Cons

Pay could stand to be higher.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay more attention to what employees are accomplishing instead of expecting employees to too their own horn.

    A great company with dedicated employees, somewhat hampered by top-heavy management.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time

    Pros

    Meg Whitman has brought some stability and made sensible moves to bring the company around after the last few disastrous CEOs.
    It is possible to follow a technical career path that is valued and respected within HP, which in my experience is comparatively rare.
    There are plenty of real experts in this company who have been around a long time.
    There are plenty of world-class learning / training opportunities.

    Cons

    HP is still reeling from the effects of a run of bad CEOs, notably the Hurd era where rampant short-termism ran amok to please those "investors" of the parasitic, asset-stripping mentality.
    There's quite a bit of dead wood, especially in middle management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to hang onto your good folks.
    A bit more investment up front - especially in staff whilst trying to build up businesses - saves a lot of firefighting and embarrassment later (tbh I've not worked for *any* company that really appreciated this, even with the wealth of HP).
